I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1500 last week with all the trimmings... Windows Vista, etc. I'm not quite sure what my issue is, but I have a sneaking suspicion it might be Windows Vista that's causing my problem, if not, I hope someone can help me out anyway.
I connect to a 28k modem via dial-up on the laptop. I have NO problems with this connection on my desktop, but everytime I connect to AOL VR on my laptop it kicks me AT LEAST three times an hour. It can't be my phone jacks, or so I think, because I've tried the laptop on all the phone jacks in my house and the internet does the same thing... kicking me three times an hour, or more. It's very frustrating because no one can figure out the issue. Is it something I didn't do to make the connection established? Help would be appreciated, thank you!
